Cogstate Research™ Terms of Use

1. Terms of Use
This Agreement sets forth the contractual terms and conditions (the “Terms of Use”) according to which User (defined below) is permitted to use the Cogstate Research™ software (the “Research Software”) owned and operated by COGSTATE LTD and its affiliates (collectively, “COGSTATE”) in its study (the “Study”).

In order to use the Research Software, User is required to register via the COGSTATE website by providing a limited amount of personal and study-specific information. User’s registration and use of the Research Software constitutes User’s acceptance of these Terms of Use and agreement to be bound thereby. User’s provision of personal and study-specific information through the registration process and access to and use of the Research Software and any information contained within the Website or otherwise provided by COGSTATE is entirely voluntary. If User does not wish to be bound by these Terms of Use, User must not register or use the Research Software.

2. Eligibility
The Research Software is made available by COGSTATE strictly and exclusively to support legitimate academic (non-commercial) research. The Study must, by way of example but not limitation: (a) be funded by an academic entity; (b) not form part of a submission to a regulatory entity (e.g., the FDA); (c) be undertaken with the intent to publish; and (d) not be restricted in terms of publication imposed by a for-profit company. User hereby warrants that the Study meets at least the preceding criteria and that it will respond to any reasonable request by COGSTATE for evidence of such compliance. If it is determined by COGSTATE, at its reasonable discretion, that the Study is not legitimate academic (non-commercial) research, User agrees to pay COGSTATE the price differential for a commercially sponsored study, as calculated with reference to COGSTATE commercial pricing at the time of calculation.

3. Not a medical device
The Research Software and the results generated by the Research Software are provided for purposes of academic research only. Neither the Research Software nor the results generated by the Research Software are designed or intended to provide medical advice or a medical diagnosis.

The Research Software is designed only to provide a simple measure of cognitive function and to assist you in measuring and assessing changes in cognitive function over time. Cognitive function can change for many reasons, including but not limited to, lack of sleep, impairment due to substance abuse, distraction, and many other reasons that have nothing to do with injury or disease. Research Software provides no guidance as to the cause of any change in cognitive function and cannot be used to diagnose an injury or any other medical condition.
